ARTIST STATEMENT

​As an artist, I utilize paint & pencil to provide physical form to esoteric concepts.  My pieces utilize bold color and texture to portray visual clues reflecting individual and community.  The human family is of utmost importance to my creative endeavors.  I am a willing participant and contributor to my personal and cultural cosmology.  My goal is to develop intriguing art which invites deep reflection.


There are countless ways to place ourselves into this universe.  I believe all of us are simply looking for our seat at the table, our way home.  As an artist, I am becoming aware of my own place at the table - my tools: paint, pencil, conversation, insight and compassion.  My goal is to create gentle reminders, talismans of hope and potential.  My art serves to guide one to their seat.  Friends and family are waiting, welcome home!
